that everything must be on the table including defense which accounts for 20% that you probably know of the budget that the defense doesn't seem to be on the table in terms of lightly discussed solutions or strategies. instead we confront the sequestration, a thoroughly bad idea for getting the defense budget or any other budget unless we take action we could take a fiscal or economic crisis that forces the cuts to the military priorities, steep and arbitrary cuts that are more coherent or prioritized. the question is can we and how do we achieve savings that can improve our fiscal outlook while meeting our national security needs. to quote at arnall mullen again, he said the pentagon budget was basically doubled in the last decade and in doubling the ability to prioritize to make the decisions to deutsch analyses to make trades. we also need a review of the defense strategy that makes sure that we are preparing for the threats and risks of the 21st century, not those of the past. the efforts on the longest lines to help advance the best ideas for improving our defense strategy. earlier this year,
mentioned the defense budget. host: you are the perfect first phone call, that is what we are focusing on today on "the washington journal." for the whole part of the show we will be talking about defense, sequestration, and what it means for the pentagon. we will develop the entire show to that discussion. stay with us for the rest of it. "the washington post" reports on military contracts. it says here "over 250 contracts with a combined value of $21 billion, a 44% drop from october." it shows here the top five contracts in november by value. boeing was at the top of the list with a $4 billion contract for the air force. delta dental got a $6.2 billion contract for retiree coverage. then that is followed by battle space. those are some of the top defense contracts in november. that overall no. 4 defense contracts is down 44%. republican line, alaska -- arkansas? where are you from? caller: hold aligned. off a cliff. the fiscal cliff goes. take the pension away from the politicians that gave us in this place. host: what does that solve? caller: give us back our country. pioneers, thos
that are deep in the playoff hunt. the ravens defense has its sights set on robert griffin, iii. he wasn't sacked at all monday night and right now the rookie is tied for fewest interceptions on the season, but he's facing one of the most dynamic safeties in the league, a ravens game without an ed reed interception almost like turkey without thanksgiving. >> ed reed, he's the top of that defense. with ray lewis being out he is the leader of that defense. so he does a good job with everything. he covers a lot of ground. he tackles well. he's got good ball skills. >> he's a guy that's in the film room every day. he knows what's going to happen before it happens. usually the great players are not only great athletes, but they're great students of the game. >> today rg3 has a place in the pro football hall of game. monday night griffin set the nfl single season record for yards rushing by a quarterback. now his jersey and cleats from that game will be on display and no, they have not been washed. >> it's awesome. everyone wants to be in the hall of fame. so we're in there, but got a long car
defense cuts. in fact, both sides have gone out of their way to say they shouldn't happen. but if there's no deal, they may happen anyway. in today's "deep dive" how the sequester could impact our military, our economy, and our safety. the budget control act calls for about a trillion dollars in automatic cuts to begin in january if laes no deal. half would come from domestic spending. we'll dig deeper into that. today spes cifically about the half that comes from security and defense. the cuts on that side amount to $492 billion over the next ten years but they aren't across the board. the president has promised to exempt military personnel and veterans affairs. let me start this here. here is the $492. that, by the way, this $492 billion is on top of another $450 billion cuts the d.o.d. was planning to make to cut waste and trim unnecessary programs. it's prompted mrenting of hand wringing on both sides. >> we can't afford another $500 billion in cuts in our defense budget on top of the $500 billion in cuts that the president is already making. >> the sequester destroys the united sta

she suffered. the foundation for defense of democracy is held this discussion. it is about an hour. >> good morning, it is a very interesting panel so i want to get quickly into questions. i want to quickly set the stage -- i don't need to tell anyone in this room about the death of the problem of human rights abuses in iran. i would just read briefly from the report that the u.n. special wrote and file to the u.n. general assembly in september of 2011 when there was a pattern of systemic violations of human rights. iran has refused access to the united nations special representative on human rights. in september, 2011, the un secretary-general submitted a report to the general assembly in which he said he was "deeply troubled by reports of increased numbers of executions, amputations, arbitrary arrests and detentions, unfair trials, torture, and ill treatment and bemoaned the crackdown on human rights activists, lawyers, journalists, and opposite -- and opposition activists." one example from the week's news -- there was what qualifies in iran as a some good news -- a well-known h

nothing, and here's the most important thing. he gets big cuts in defense which he would never get under a negotiated deal of any kind with republicans and democrats. he gets half a trillion dollars in defense cuts. yes, he gets a half a trillion dollars in cuts in domestic programs. they'll be much more than that in any negotiating deal, so this is actually a very good deal for the president to just say i'm putting forth good faith and if you don't do everything i want, then i've got a fall back i can live with. >> here's another thing that he says. maybe you ca can explain this. he's quoted as saying let tax rates on the upper income folks go up and then let's set up a process with a time certain at the end ofhere we will work on tax reform. we'll look at what loopholes, and he goes on. what american is ever going to believe a president or anyone else that later on the government is going to do this? i mean, does he think -- i mean, it's absurd. no american is going to trust that i'm here from the government and here to help you or don't worry, we're going to do this alert. >> it goes

recently this week in working through a large and complex defense authorization bill that will keep our nation safer and more secure in these perilous times. it will take more of this kind of cooperation and consensus building to address the very real and substantial challenges facing our nation today. that is why i'm deeply concerned about a proposal floated recently by some members of the majority regarding the rules of the senate. they propose to change the nearly 100-year-old senate rule that requires a two-thirds majority to change the operating rules of the senate. our colleagues in the majority are proposing to use a simple majority vote to make the change. that's the issue here. the issue is the manner in which they plan to do it. once the precedent of changing a rule with a simple majority vote is established, 51 senators could change the rules to suit their own convenience. in other words, they want to break the rules in order to change the rules. that would be a big mistake. that would be, as the majority leader himself said in his own book, the death of the senate. votes tha

that created the joint chiefs of staff, secretary of defense. during the civil war, in world war ii there was a secretary of war who was responsible for the army, and secretary of the navy, responsible for the navy who sat as co-equals on the cabinet table and they were members of the coalition press. they were on the same side without a doubt, but they were hardly partners. i became very clear early on to not only was halleck, general can't be done, jealous of his own command. he wanted to keep the forces under his own immediate control which he believed a need to capture this road a. but in addition to navy was equally jealous of partnering with the army. they didn't want to do. secretary of the navy was absolutely determined whenever possible that the navy should do things without upping the army. it was just that they couldn't do without the army. they really saw to do without the army. that was a good thing because then i got the headlines. so behind all of this difficulty that begins to emerge now, there is this sort of underpinnings of jealousy, competition, rivalry between t
